“I’ve been a client of Carissa’s from the beginning and she is not only my friend but such an AMAZING photographer.  Her down-to-earth personality and humor always makes our sessions so much fun and I literally am excited for months leading up to them.  I think I personally decided to have a second child just so she could photograph the baby/our family 🙂 I cannot say enough for the quality of images she provides and I love her “outside the box” ideas she comes up with and end up loving these “un-posed” pictures the most!  I would highly recommend her to anyone and know that you will get such a great array of photographs every time!” -Alycia K.

“I was referred to Carissa by a friend of mine for my maternity photos. I had not had pictures professionally taken since my senior photos 10 years ago! I was very nervous, but Carissa made my fiancé and I feel so comfortable. She gave great direction and was very patient with our lack of modeling skills! When it came time to view our gallery we could not have been more happy! She did an AMAZING job capturing the joy of that time in our life! Since she did such a great job with our maternity photos, we decided to use her for our newborn photos! Again we were blown away by her talent! Now we are happy to say we are going to use her for our wedding photos! I am excited to see how she captures the day!” –Ashley H.

“I first met Carissa at the hospital and was struck by how caring and enthusiastic she was about her work. When a friend also showed me some photos that Carissa had taken for them, I knew that we had to ask her to be our photographer for our 2nd son’s 1st birthday. She was so amazing and her photos were beautiful. Since then, I pretty much completely rely on her to capture the special moments of my crazy family (now 3 little boys under 4!). She is so patient, sweet and fun. And her photos are just top-notch. We love Carissa!” –Esther K.

“After our session with Carissa I could not wait to see how our photos turned out.  Her ideas for staging and settings and her ability to capture the essence of how our family fits together was simply perfect.  I got the first peek of a photo she had captured of my 1 year old and literally had tears in my eyes!  It was perfect!” -Sara C.

“Carissa has been photographing our growing family for the last 2 years! She has a way of capturing images that truly show our personalities. Her images are on display all over our home and we look forward to having her photograph many more memories!” -Katie S.

“We loved working with Carissa for our son Gibson’s milestone portraits. She is professional, flexible, talented and definitely fun to work with. Her photographs truly capture my son’s personality and spirit, and they are keepsakes that we will treasure for years to come. Carissa’s personality and photography are beautiful! We cannot say enough about how wonderful our experience with CTW Portraits has been. Thank you!” – Whitney J. and Family

“Gorgeous pictures. Honestly can’t stop staring at the shots Carissa took of my daughter…I ADORE her as Felicity’s photographer! She is so patient with my squirmy girl.” and “Carissa has taken a lot of pictures for my family–it’s always a great experience.  She’s fun to work with and is super patient even when we bring a baby and/or a dog into the mix.  Not to mention that the pictures are always totally unique and beautiful!” Amy L.

“You should know that as much as I said photo shoots are miserable for us, we have nothing but fun memories now!”  and What a fun afternoon we had with Carissa! She had the sense of humor that is necessary to get my family to participate with a smile” -Jenny D.

“Um Hello amazing in every way possible. Carissa does a fabulous job at giving you just what you want and also some creative work that you never knew you wanted but now you can’t live without. If we are lucky enough she will be photographing all of our milestones in life. Highly recommended!” –Laura N.
